We spent one day at Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. We packed a picnic lunch so that we wouldn't have to leave the beach in search of food. We first stopped at Fort Macon State Park and visited the fort. Then we took a long walk on the beach and searched for seashells. As soon as everyone was ready for lunch, we asked about picnic tables and found them within the park. It was a pretty day, nice and sunny, and it was fun to eat and watch the water. It was a neat day, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The facilities at the park were great and no admission fee was charged for their use.
